Jami Smith ‘stands out as among the brightest’ | LETTER

During the four years that I have been privileged to serve as a Renton city council member, I have had the wonderful opportunity to meet with many dedicated members of our community. Of all of the residents I have worked with, Jami stands out as among the brightest.

I believe a candidate for city council should be held to very high standards, including: coming prepared to meetings, attending and being actively involved with assigned committees and treating staff and fellow members with respect. Also it is important to be mindful that in a democracy, elected officials are public servants and need to be true to their word. In her professional life, Jami is a resounding success and holds herself to these high standards.

Jami is unapologetically authentic. She has a heart for service and the professional skills to make a difference. She will be a strong voice for all the residents of Renton. I believe Jami Smith is the person best qualified to be our next fellow council member.
